Channeling Resilience: 4th Annual Paving the Way Conference

We are thrilled to share that our 4th annual Paving the Way conference co-sponsored by Center for Court Innovation, Common Justice/Healing Works, Crime Victims Treatment Center, Crown Heights Community Mediation Center/Make It Happen, and the Kings County District Attorney’s Office, with extraordinary partners just around the corner.  Join us on April 20 at Medgar Evers College in Brooklyn for: Channeling Resilience: Community and Individual Healing By and For Young Men of Color.

Our 2018 conference will focus on “channeling resilience” for young men of color and their communities who have been harmed by violence.  This exploration of promising practices will lift up the experience not only of some of the larger nonprofits working in this area, but equally, the voices of grassroots organizations, experienced practitioners, and crucially, the young men themselves.  The conference will feature a number of break-out sessions that will encourage in-depth discussions between presenters and participants. Presenters are encouraged to lead dynamic conversations and build on the wisdom of the participants.

If you are interested in presenting at the conference, you can access the call for proposals here .  Please note the deadline is March 2.  If you work with young men of color who have survived violence and have ideas and experience about what works in supporting them through their pain and healing, we want to hear form you. We are especially interested in authentic dialogue that includes the lens of race, racism, gender identity, sexual orientation, culture, and class.

We look forward to seeing you then!
